about amy schimler-safford


My love of color began in my early childhood growing up in Brooklyn, NY. I never wandered too far without my chunky red crayon. Moving to Miami at a young age continued to fuel my love of color and pattern. I focused on studying painting and textile design in art school. I am now a designer and illustrator specializing in children's books and games, apparel design, stationery and gifts, textiles, and wall decor, having received industry recognition for my work. I continue to delight in the beautiful colors that surround me daily in my tiny cabin in the woods. To share this joy with others through my art is both a gift and a privilege.
